As you are coming up on the anniversary of your mom's death, I am just beginning to take care of my mother who was diagnosed with RCC of the lungs 3 weeks ago. She had her left kidney removed 6 years ago and we were told that she would be fine. She didn't have insurance for 4 years after that and she didn't keep up with Scans. She is now 65, almost 66 and is on Medicare. My heart broke in half 3 weeks ago. She had a lung biopsy done and during the procedure her lung collapsed and we were told that she would never wake up. We decided to honor her wishes of DNR and we took her off of the ventilator. She woke up wanting coffee and ice cream! She starts chemo this week and I am really nervouse about it. I usually have a positive attitude about things, but I don't have a good feeling about this............
I don't know how I will ever get through life without my mom. She has been my rock for 42 years now.
Please know that you are in my prayers!! Know that your mom is smiling down on you! I truely believe that!

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
